    Question How are you?

    Do you feel like ppl really care when they ask that question or is it just a greeting like "Hey what's up?"

    Do you actually pause and wait for an answer from someone?

    Do you feel comfortable replying with an answer of what's really going on? or do you just say tings cool and keep it moving?

    Does it depend on who is doing the asking?
    Who would you open up to?


    Lets chat

    A sharp knife never proclaims its sharpness to the worldbut the first to fall against it becomes its advocate.

    funny that you ask that question...


    at my old job a co-worker of mine asked me why i actually answer when she asks that question. I am like how yuh mean she said it not really said to get a response, it's just a formality.

    I think most people use it as a greeting; some are genuine about it; others maybe a little of both
    Do you actually pause and wait for an answer from someone?
    Yes
    Do you feel comfortable replying with an answer of what's really going on? or do you just say tings cool and keep it moving?
    Depends who I'm talkin to and/or how long it's been since I last spoke to that person
    Does it depend on who is doing the asking?
    See above...yes
    Who would you open up to?
    Close fam. members, close friends/associates, or anyone who I think really cares and who I don't mind opening up to.

    I'm guilty of that but I think most ppl are. Its completely different depending on who its coming from -usually its a formality but when a small number of ppl, close friends and family say it you know they're really asking whats going on in your life these days. Cultural quirk like shaking hands, I HATE shaking ppl's hands, only do it cause I know its expected.

    It's just a part of protocol, its equivalent to "hello, this is a superficial attempt to fill the empty air with a false sense of friendship rather than just bear up with the silence"
